Your FECA Board invites you to review the results of the Forest Edge Drive Parking Needs Survey conducted in August with current Forest Edge Drive residents and property owners.
One survey per household was sent. Two houses were unoccupied at the time the survey was launched. Twenty seven on-line surveys were sent to households who receive e-communications from the Board. Nineteen paper ballots were mailed for those households or property owners who are not currently registered in the e-communication program. In total, we received 34 responses. Thank you to everyone who took the time to respond to the survey.
As a reminder, all residents can sign up for electronic communications by selecting Subscribe from the menu at the top right of the Homepage.

At the May Board Meeting, the board voted on Guidelines for Property Maintenance. These guidelines also incorporate Fairfax County and RA guidelines and several newly adopted guidelines for Forest Edge Cluster Association.
GUIDELINES FOR PROPERTY MAINTENANCE AND USE
Do you have an extra set of hands to help a neighbor with a project? Do you have an area of expertise that will be welcomed by a neighbor? If you do, then please consider volunteering in our neighborhood outreach volunteer program. Assisting neighbors who can benefit from your time and experience is a win/win for everyone!
There are numerous tasks that can be done in our community to help our neighbors who aren’t physically able to do things themselves.
The rewards of volunteering are plentiful. You will not only be beautifying our cluster but you will get to know some of your neighbors while feeling good about helping. Many hands make a light work load.
Volunteer Opportunities Include:
If you would like to volunteer or if you need assistance with a project, please contact Kathy Oris .
If you are a middle school or high school student, or if you know one who needs community service hours, this volunteer work will count towards community service hours!
In an effort to keep our directory up to date we are requesting that residents remember to please contact the board if you would like to have any updates regarding your personal information in the
